The B-52's is the debut album by the Athens, Georgia-based new wave band the B-52's. The kitschy lyrics and mood, and the hook-laden harmonies helped establish a fanbase for the band, who went on to release several chart-topping singles.

The sleeve for Strange Planet is an exception; it's back cover is the back page of the standard CD's booklet for whatever reason. The set includes no booklets, gatefold covers or inner sleeves but it's still a great set for those who've never gone beyond a compilation and need these albums in their collection.

The B-52's - Dirty Back Road. By Paste Magazine January 29, 2014. This is a terrific document of the group shortly after the 2nd album release. They play the 2nd album in it's entirety as well as most of the first album. It's b&w, but well lit, good audio and every second of it is here. The original lineup (they look so young!) bursting with creativity on their first tour as headliners.

4. Give Me Back My Man. 5. Private Idaho. Best of the B-52's: Dance This Mess Around. Box Set, 1990, Island Records.

Oh, don't look back Don't look behind you Reckless drivin' on Dirty back Road. Ricky Wilson drivin', like a sports car God I want you, like a fuel engine Energized line, like a road You ride me Like a road You ride me. Foot on the peddle Feet in the air Sand in my hair. Oh, don't look back Don't look behind you Reckless drivin' on Dirty back Road.

These songs illustrated that the B-52's' adoration of camp culture wasn't simply affectation - it was a world view capable of turning out brilliant pop singles and, in turn, influencing mainstream pop culture. It's difficult to imagine the endless kitschy retro fads of the '80s and '90s without the B-52's pointing the way, but The B-52's isn't simply an historic artifact - it's a hell of a good time.
